Conservative journalist Laura Loomer presses assault charges against Maxine Waters

On Tuesday, conservative journalist Laura Loomer said she filed a police report to press charges of assault against Maxine Waters, the impeachment-obsessed California Democrat who recently incited violence against members of the Trump administration.

Loomer explained:  “When I confronted her regarding her call for targeted harassment of Trump administration officials, Ms. Waters assaulted me 3 times. She hit my hand to try to knock my phone out of my hand, and then she hit me in the face with her papers twice.”


She also posted a photo of the police report number:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The entire video can be seen here.

Reaction to her report was largely supportive:



One person wondered how many others Waters has assaulted:


Over the weekend, Waters encouraged supporters to harass and attack members of the Trump administration in public places.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said.

Since then, Judicial Watch filed a House ethics complaint against Waters and Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., filed a measure to censure Waters.  That measure also calls for her to formally apologize and resign from the House.  A separate White House petition demands she be expelled from Congress and the pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk, among others, have said she should be deemed a domestic terrorist.

All in all, it hasn’t been a good week for Waters.

Hopefully, voters in California’s 43rd Congressional District will see fit to kick Waters out of office this November — assuming, of course, that she’s not in jail or a mental institution…
